Crock Pot Scalloped Potatoes

I love scalloped potatoes during the cooler weather. I am planning to make this dish next week as a side dish for our leftover turkey.

Crock Pot Scalloped Potatoes

2 lbs. potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp butter
1 can cream soup of your choice
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

Grease crock pot then add (in layers): potatoes, onions, salt and pepper. On top add butter and soup. Cook on low 7-8 hours or on high 3-4 hours. 30 minutes before done cooking, remove lid, sprinkle with cheese then replace cover and allow to finish cooking.

NOTE: to make this dish into a main meal, incorporate layers of thinly sliced bell pepper and thinly sliced smoked sausage or other meat of your choice.

Your recipe sounds very yummy, but I have been all over looking for a basic scalloped potato recipe for the crock pot, and everyone has cheese, my understanding was that scalloped potatos with cheese were au gratin, and with just the milk was scalloped. I am going to bookmark your site though, it was the easiest to navigate of all the ones I have seen so far!

I thought the cheese was augratin too! I am looking for some way to try this with any option than with soup. It seems all the soups have msg in them, and I get migraines that last 3 or more days when I eat msg.

To make this recipe without a cream soup, try making a homemade white sauce flavored with a little chicken boullion. You can find many recipes for these types of sauces online. I have a recipe for a homemade cream soup mix here - http://chefmichele.blogspot.com/2005/10/tips-for-frugal-kitchen.html

do the potatoes get mushy

Michele said...

No, never once have they gotten mushy. They always turn out awesome! I always use regular russet potatoes.

Absolutely amazing! So quick, so easy...so much more simple than the traditional layering of flour and milk for oven cooking! I used golden potatoes and it turned out great! Thanks for posting!

warning: commercial bouillon probably has msg.

I use the water from boiled potatoes to make my white sauce.

I used a 5 quart but I think a 6 quart would work just fine.
